2017 Gourmand Award Winner of “US National Cookbook of the Year”
“With Kurt’s book Pure Food, he proves that healthy, well-sourced food doesn’t have to compromise on flavor.”
—Tom Colicchio, founder of Craft restaurants and Colicchio & Sons restaurants
With the proliferation of artificial additives, hormones, antibiotics, and the thousand other man-made substances and chemical cocktails lurking in our grocery bags, eating healthy, natural foods is trickier than ever. It’s no coincidence that America’s health is flagging, with obesity and type 2 diabetes now at epidemic levels.
Taking control of your diet doesn’t have to be a challenge. Pure Food will show you how easy—and how much healthier—it is to cook clean, delicious foods.
Kurt Beecher Dammeier, chef, restaurateur, food entrepreneur, retailer, and educator has spent the past 30 years of his life working to rid his own diet of food additives, and nearly 20 creating and selling pure, unadulterated foods through his Seattle-based family of food businesses (including Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, Pasta & Co, Bennett’s Restaurant, The Butcher’s Table, and Mishima Reserve). In Pure Food, Kurt shares his own story, as well as providing a roadmap for readers to forge a diet based on pure, additive-free foods.
Part handbook and part cookbook, Pure Food contains more than 70 delicious and natural recipes for pure living. Whether you’re a serial dieter or trying for the first time to improve the way you eat, Pure Food will revolutionize how you approach food and lead you down the path to a healthier life.
